The Neue Schule Turtle Top Tactio Loose Ring Snaffle is the latest in the Turtle Top mouthpiece range from the Neue Schule bits collection.

The Neue Schule Turtle Top Tactio Loose Ring Snaffle is a modified version of the extremely popular Turtle Top With Flex; redesigned and re-engineered to accommodate the larger or sensitive tongue.  This Neue Schule bit has proved extremely successful when nosebands have previously been employed to keep the mouth closed as it is often far better accommodated by the horse.

This bold TongueSMARTTM design focuses rein pressure to the central part of the tongue whilst diverting pressure away from the sensitive regions near the bars. The unique central ‘Turtle’ link brings the proximal ends of the cannons to their closest separation possible. The FlexT TM concept of widening the surfaces that lie parallel to the plane of the tongue reduces the pressure further. With any kind of noseband the closed mouth easily accommodates the mouthpiece whose effective thickness in the region of the interdental space is the smallest in the Neue Schule range. To reward horses that want to work with you.

The unique design delivers supreme comfort for the horse and encourages acceptance of the bit allowing for enhanced communication and feel. The Neue Schule Turtle Top Tactio Loose Ring Snaffle was highly commended at BETA International Innovation Award 2016, the Judges explained what made them rate the product so highly: ‘We loved seeing a product where horse welfare and comfort are the paramount concerns – along with inspired innovation.’
